Deep creek hotsprings

Not sure if this would even be the appropriate location to post this but...

Has anyone ever driven their jeep through the forest roads to get to the
San Bernardino National Forest hot springs?

Yepper ~~~ Been a few years, but use to do 3N14 from FawnSkin (up in Big Bear) down to Deep Creek, Silverwood, Cleghorn and Victorville / Hesperia all the time.
And I'd get to Big Bear via Hwy 38 from San Bernardino / Mentone area. It would be
just one big loop, but a Great Day trip. The San Bernardino Mtns. are just FULL of
fantastic Trails. Stop at a Ranger Station and ask for a Map, they were free, and
updated yearly.
I say a few years now because I now live in Colorado, which is also GREAT.

It's not BAD at all, and can be done in a compleatly Stock Jeep with NO PROBLEMS.

Not sure if this helps because I haven't heard of the Forest Hot Springs or Deep Creek Hot Springs. Trails in the links I created below pass through Deep Creek. If you have any week days you can go, I need to use some vacation time. I'll be happy to join you for a day run up there. Just send me a PM. Lots of fun trails in the Big Bear/Arrowhead area.

I too have accumulated some vacation I could totally use. I haven't really explored the general area so it's uncharted territory for me but I'd like to change that. Perhaps we can get group together for a weekend trip in the near future?

so would the dicey parts of the trail be tough on stock jeeps due to their low ground clearance? I'm higher than stock but don't have locking diffs yet..

Yeah, The part at Dishpan could give you some trouble, but if you are with another Jeep you you would be fine. Youtube Dishpan springs, there are lots of videos.

Sounds like fun! I'll be on the interested list.

As you mentioned though, might be a few months before all the snow melts.

I have a buddy who (at the time) did Dishpan and John Bull (probably the toughest trail up there) in a stock Sport with 32s and no lockers, but he did have rock sliders and he made it through without damage. I'd like to do White Mountain when there is no snow. I've only done it twice and both times it snowed. It's a pretty easy trail except for one climb, I think it's been called Suicide Hill, that you definitely need some clearance. The last time I went that part was completely snowed out. Here's a video of the trail in a semi-blizzard.



Maybe we can get a group together to hit a few of these trails late April or early May. I have a bunch of trail locations marked on EveryTrail. If you go to http://www.everytrail.com/, just type rjd949oc in the search field and click the link next to my picture to pull them up.

Nice video! That's pretty crazy doing those trails in that weather!

I'm un-decided if I would be able to do White Mountain or John Bull even in good weather. I definitely want to though!

I've done white mountain and dishpan many times on a Honda 400ex quad. I was always nervous to take my old 87 jeep on them. I've watched many vehicles go up them without any problem, I've also seen a few guys that wished they hadn't.

I think white mountain is a tougher trail then dishpan. That huge monster straight up right before the lookout area is intense, seeing all them clutch levers on the way up makes me smile.

I heard malcom smith cut that trail in first?????

Your antenna flag was standing straight out, besides the weather the trail looked like fun.

It is those uphill stops that us standards envy you automatics.

Lived in Crestline for 16 years....Not too much for trailing, but we would drop down the backside to Lake Silverwood area, lots down there...

I'm going to Pismo that weekend and with gas prices where they are, not sure I'll be able to make it but I'll keep it on the radar. Post the hours you plan on doing the exploring and maybe I can make it.
